Anastrozole and sinus issues
It's been awhile since I've been on here. I was diagnosed in May 2014 with ILC. I had surgery, followed with radiation, and then a prescription for Anastrozole. I've had the usual side effects of insomnia and aches and pains, but have just been watching the calendar knowing that my 5 years will be coming up next year and I will be ending this medication (I know some doctors are recommending 10 years). Since October 2016, I've had 5-6 sinus infections. I never had sinus infections previously. I had a CT scan on my sinuses last week and my regular doctor said my sinuses are normal. The strange thing is that I don't feel like I have drainage or stuffiness, but my left side feels extremely dry and I get this screaming pain around my teeth. An antibiotic clears the problem, but I don't understand why I keep getting them. I read somewhere that sinus infections could be a side effect of Anastrozole. I am almost 61 years old, so post menopausal, and have been taking this medication for 4 years and 2 months, with the first infection in October of 2016.
Anyone else having this issue?
